Poetry for Grown-Ups

Vintage e-books

The amount of poetry available in the English language is often mind boggling: there is more that I want to read than I ever will read.  Still, one has to start somewhere, and the poets on this page are ones I love.

The richness of these poets can be appreciated by all ages, not only adults.  When you find a poet you love, share that love with your little ones.  Quote lines to them, read them excerpts and even suitable poems.  You might be surprised how much they glean.
